Hopefully the HBO executives will finally wake up and say, **** it, we don't care if that idiot Kellerman has photos of us in bras and panties being whipped by a dominatrix in a bar in Greenwich Village at four in the morning, let's get a real replacement for Larry!

An overwhelming majority of boxing fans want for Teddy Atlas to be on HBO

35 years too late. Guy is a drunken idiot who knows nothing about the sport, always wanting to see a brawl. I have no idea how he's kept his job.

This, I used to not care what he said, but the last few years he's been complaining in many fights, and he's so slow to get he's point out that even the other commentators just talk over him.

THis has nothing to do with floyd. Merchant is old and he knows his time is up at HBO. Its been a nice run. He and Steward had a good vibe but now its going to be max/rjj who are young and very good.

I hate Merhants ass sometimes, especially in the Packie interview but all in all, I respect the guy because I know he's been there and done that. It would be hard not being able to cuss his ass out. That's one of my favorite pastimes. **** Paulie, anybody who claimed a win for Cotto in the Trout fight is blind and full of shit. Roy ain't going nowhere cause that bitch Lampley needs him. Plus he's not half bad. Kellerman is weak and everybody knows it. That's why he lost his show. He ask school boy questions with all that he said, she said shit. Then he spouts all his common knowledge wisdom and act like he said something profound. Ledderman is crazy but I can live with that cause he don't hate. When Merchant goes, a whole lot of history goes with him. I will miss the old dog.

Lampley needs to go worse than anyone else. He is the most biased arse kisser in all of boxing

Roy Jones hes still developing as a broadcaster but has a lot of potential

It's been fun and entertaining about 20% of the time. Have a nice retirement to the Laz-E-Boy. Now all we need is Arum's bitch ass to join him and the sport of Boxing will begin to flourish immediately.

he was good, but for some reason it doesn't matter that much to me. And I have watched him for 30 years.

About time for this racist mofo to finally gtfo. im tired of hearing merchant hate on black fighters, he claims that he shits on floyd because he doesn't like floyd's style, but he also shit on tyson, whose style merchant supposedly loves. the man is simply racist and floyd said it best- " he doesn't know shit about boxing".
